This refers to the Australian market (first link in the article). Winter there is summer in the northern hemisphere.

nothing changed.

This whole ThunderBolt thing is sounding like a clever bait and switch. (And before before all the Apple Worshipers here disagree, let's hear about your new TB device on the market today that didn't require a freaking 2nd mortgage on your house).

The way I see it, I just swapped out a working FW port when I upgraded. Screw the pricey crap. Where the hell are all these TB adapters at?

Ha!, that's why I posted. I wasn't sure about that and forgot about the winter/summer thing.

Thanks

Would be a bit unnerving if it was true.

Ok, so I screwed up a little....:D

errr... where did you lost your firewire port? its still there.

a high I/O port like that is made for professional use, the peripherals are going to cost more, and I have never heard about a NAS that was cheap.

Basically multimedia professionals are the ones that are going to get the benefit:

cams
external pcie adapter, for cards like gpus, soundcards and so forth
external storage of large files
and so forth...

The idea is to have a direct connection to the pcie slot, thus only things that use that kind of high I/O are going to be benefited. And they never are cheap
